ATEi was the FIRST ever to machine serrations into a semi-auto slide for the purpose of single hand manipulations on May 4, 2010. All others copied and followed us. Top Slide Serrations for single hand manipulations were developed in partnership with Steve Fisher (former owner of MDFI and lead instructor for Magpul Dynamics now owner of Sentinel Concepts). ATEi Top Slide Serrations are a uni-directional set of curving edges machined into the slide of the gun. They perform much like the propulsion mechanism of scales on snakes or fish.
ATEi Top Slide Serrations are precise and unique features that are machined into a slide to improve performance and make it perfect for the user. Top Slide Serrations improve single-handed manipulation when situations are at their worst. With ATEi Top Slide Serrations a shooter will be able to safely, effectively and efficiently rack the slide to get the gun functioning.
The fundamentals of combat shooting are weapon manipulations and control. For single-handed manipulations of the pistol’s slide, Serrations grab onto your clothing, belt, holster, door jamb, a bad guys forehead or any available surface or edges. ATEi Top Slide Serrations allow shooters to control the weapon in expected and unexpected situations because reality is never what you imagined it to be in a gunfight.
